Attorney Profile

Rick J. DeMedeiros is the sole member of his own firm in Conyers, Georgia. Serving clients throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area, he exclusively focuses his practice on the representation of people who have been injured in workplace accidents or as a result of the negligence of others.

Before starting his firm, Mr. DeMedeiros was associated with two law firms that represented employers and insurance companies in workers' compensation matters, and he draws from his rich background in that field to each client's advantage. He has handled workers' compensation cases involving work-related deaths and catastrophic injuries, including severe spinal cord damage, amputations and traumatic brain injuries. The personal injury claims he has handled have involved injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents as well as premises liability.

Mr. DeMedeiros is held in high esteem and has garnered great respect from his peers, which is shown not only by his AV-Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell, but also in the number of colleagues who refer clients to him. Admitted to practice in Georgia, he is a member of several professional organizations, including the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Georgia Hispanic Bar Association and the Atlanta and Rockdale County bar associations. A native of Puerto Rico, he is fluent in both Spanish and English.

After receiving his bachelor's degree in business administration from Georgia State University in 2001, Mr. DeMedeiros earned his Juris Doctor from the Georgia State University College of Law in 2004. While a third-year law student, he served as a mediator for the Fulton County State/Magistrate Landlord/Tenant Mediation Program.

*AV-Preeminent is a certification mark of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories—legal ability and general ethical standards.
